Description

A man labeled “19th century” and looking like an ancient philosopher, with a long beard and a toga, is surrounded by the attributes of science and modernity as a young woman brings him a scale model of a city on a tray and the figures of the year 1900 glow on the horizon.
The caption reads in the original French: Invitation pour la réunion des jurys des expositions pour 1900.
